Announcing Nymbl Training App 2.0!

We are pleased to announce the imminent availability of the Nymbl Training App 2.0!  This is a major release that includes many new exercises and dual tasking challenges, more efficient promotion of users from one level to another, plus (drum roll) availability on the Android platform!

Here’s more on each new feature:

  • Coach Mode moved to the Nymbl Class App
    Recognizing that Nymbl Coaches have different needs than Nymbl users at home, we have split one app into two.  If you are a coach, you will want to be sure you have the Class app as well as the new Nymbl Pro App.

    The new Training app has been optimized for at home use and will have continual new features, exercises and challenges designed specifically for the at-home user.

  • Automatic Promotion
    The training app can now be set up promote the user to the next training level by the coach. Initially there are options for a 1-week period, a 2-week period, or a 3-week period, but additional period options based on proficiency will be soon added.
  • Updated Senior Track Program
    The 2.0 Training app  has two big changes to the previous Senior Track Program:

    • Additional Training levels. The Senior Track Program now goes up to Week 36.
    • All of the Training Levels of the Senior Track now have cognitive dual task exercises so that all training engages the brain in multipleways.

Nymbl Class 2.0 Launching this week!!

Nymbl Class IconWe’re excited to announce the imminent release of Nymbl Class 2.0!  Our Class app, designed for use in a class setting in a senior living environment, includes major new features and literally dozens of improvements requested by our current professional users in ILC’s.  New features include:

  • No wifi required to log in.  Many senior communities have limited wifi in the gym or class areas.  So now an instructor can walk in to the room, connect remotely to the display via Apple TV by literally swiping the screen, and get the class going almost instantly, no matter how bad the data connection in the room is.
  • New “Nymbl Active” track.  Designed for active users to quickly progress in their balance, the new Nymbl Active track is a 14 level program that moves the user from static stability exercises such as half-tandems to 1 leg stands and tandem walks.
  • Landscape mode.  The Class app, which is designed to be projected on a standard TV monitor (via HDMI), is set to always display in landscape mode.  No more turning the phone to get it in the right display mode.
  • Harder/easier exercise options.  In order for the instructor to appeal to the widest audience possible, exercise screens now have suggestions for harder or easier exercises.  So participants can adjust to their own capabilities, and not feel that the class is too easy or too challenging.
  • Cognitive challenges on nearly all exercises.  Our entire system focuses on cognitive dual tasking to optimize balance improvement. We have introduced a new category of dual tasks that enables even more exercises to take advantage of this powerful approach.

These are just the major features.  When we tried it with one of our most active Senior Living Communities last week, we received an email back saying “WOW. We’re loving the new Nymbl interface, it works brilliantly. Thank you!”

We’d love to show this new app, and our other new features in Nymbl 2.0 training and Pro App!  Please see our page on Nymbl in Senior Living Communities, and then contact us for more information!
